There has been a significant increase in the number of Americans who say they are suffering from mental health disabilities over the past decade.

Researchers say the increase has amounted to nearly 2 million disabled adults, many of whom did not seek out psychological help.

Experts say financial hardships may be to blame for lack of treatment.

The study appears in the American Journal of Public Health.
